Due to inappropriate molding conditions, the density of the resin for the low-pressure fuel pump impeller is reduced, causing it to swell and deform by the fuel. Consequently, the impeller interferes with the pump cover and makes the fuel pump inoperative.
As a result, the engine may stall, increasing the risk of an accident.
The Honda HR-V models affected by this recall were manufactured between 2018 and 2019.
